Mary J. Blige’s ‘Stronger’ Pushed to Christmas Week

Santa Claus is not the only one coming down the chimney this holiday season. Mary J. Blige will also be stuffing stockings with her new album, which has been pushed back one week, just in time for Christmas.

MJB’s ninth studio album Stronger will now arrive in stores on December 22, three days before Christmas. It was previously scheduled to go head-to-head with Alicia Keys, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, and more on December 15.

A new song from the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul called “I Can See in Color” can be heard on the soundtrack to the film Precious: Based on the Novel ‘Push’ by Sapphire, opening in select theaters Friday.
